FF: Old Favorites and New

Kel Poses Insouciantly

I moved directly from getting the new editions of my “Breaking the Wall” ebooks done to getting my tax stuff ready for my accountant.  Such is the glamorous life of a writer.  For company while I added up figures and the like, I turned to audiobooks of my long-time favorite, Agatha Christie.  But I’m reading some new stuff, too…

For those of you unfamiliar with this column, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazines.  The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

And I really enjoy hearing about what you’re reading!

Recently Completed:

Paladin’s Grace by T. Kingfisher (aka Ursula Vernon).  I really enjoyed.  Made me both laugh out loud and turn pages as fast as I could to find out what was going to happen next.  Although set in the same world as her “Clocktaur Wars” (which despite the title aren’t steampunk, more sword and sorcery) and Swordheart, this is a stand-alone novel and a fit entry into the world.

Double Sin and Other Stories by Agatha Christie.  Very much enjoyed.

In Progress:

The Hollow by Agatha Christie.  Audiobook.

Marque of Caine by Charles E. Gannon.  Spy thriller space opera.  Nicely realized aliens.

Also:

I really need to get back to my research reading, but I’ve enjoyed both this last issue of Archeology and am enjoying Smithsonian.

    Thanks for giving me a couple of suggestions to add to my TBR list.

    I haven’t started or finished any books this week.

      You’re reading really long books. I looked for Blixt on audio, but my library doesn’t currently have. I’ll need to slide that down my list until I’m done with Nebula reading.

  2. King Ben's Grandma Says:

    I’m still working on “Hitting A Straight Lick With A Crooked Stick” by Zora Neale Hurston. It’s a good thing they’re short stories, I usually finish one before the book falls as I travel to dreamland.

  3. Harried Harry Says:

    I have a number of books but am sidetracked by the weather. Plums to prune (now starting to bloom) and the pear tree needs a serious pruning ’cause I’ve not pruned it in 39 years. One of these years I’ll learn how to do it right. I’ve also been discussing a new truck purchase, but I haven’t found the gold mine yet.

    Taxes are also taxing me; just reading all the new prose keeps me wide asleep.

    Happy Leap Year!
